(In reply to Jean-Claude Dole from comment #0)
My knowledge is so low that I have no opinion.
Any help is welcome.

Jean, I'm sorry but bugzilla is not the general escalation path for issues that
failed to get fixed for a user in the forums. Having no other option or lack of
knowledge is no reason for a bug by itself. We use bugs to document and track
technical action to take.

Just nothing that this is a third party package, and that we are shipping
Virtualbox in the distribution.

it."; \

As noted in
there is a patch for vbox, which our packages have but which are omitted from

Larry, are you involved in Oracle's virtualbox at all? Can they fix their
packages to work with our kernel?
